Today was my teaching day, and Sue brought the kids on a later bus to campus, which is about an hour bus ride from our apartment.Here's Peter, below playing "Sorry" with a couple of Sue's students in her office.
The students took a shining to Sophie, of course. They ran her all over campus while Sue and I rested with a cup of coffee. What a treat!
Some of our other students took Jack and Peter to the badminton courts and the soccer field.
The boys loved the wide open spaces of campus where they could play badminton or kick the soccer ball around. It is a much different environment than the downtown area where we live. There's not much room close by our apartment for them to run around like this.
We got the bubble maker out for Sophie, and she played with that for awhile, while I kicked the soccer ball around with the boys. Sue and Ashley, another foreign teacher, held down the steps and visited.
"Aww, is this thing out of bubbles already??"
Sophie was so dirty from playing, she looked like a real rag-a-muffin today! But - she had fun! "Hey Daddy, bring that camera lens closer". Yes she did get soap on my lens - not happy about that :).
We met many of our students today at the coffee shop under Teacher Building 1, in an area I believe they call "The Cave". Here I am with some students from our classes.
Peter said he felt like he was in a camera studio with all of the flashes going off. Here he is with some of my grad students, Ben, Shirly, and Sara, respectively.
